Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

The 3rd GRP Workshop (3GRP) is co-located with the 18th IEEE International Conference on e-Science. Both audiences share common interests, content, and culture. Co-location provides attendees with the option to register for both events.

The Global Research Platform (GRP) is an international scientific collaboration to create innovative advanced ubiquitous services that integrate resources around the globe at speeds of gigabits and terabits per second, especially for large-scale data-intensive science research. GRP focuses on design, implementation, and operation strategies for next-generation distributed services and infrastructure to facilitate high-performance data gathering, analytics, transport, computing, and storage among multiple science sites at 100 Gbps or higher. GRP community partners are in North America, Asia, Europe, and South America and work together to customize international fabrics and distributed cyberinfrastructure to support optimal data-intensive scientific workflows.

3GRP focuses on recent and emerging advances in architectures, services, technologies, and infrastructures. Speakers explain how their innovations can directly support global science research. The 3GRP Workshop program is being designed around seven themes: (a) Next-Generation Research Platforms; (b) Orchestration Among Multiple Domains; (c) Large-Scale Data Transport; (d) High-Fidelity Data Flow Monitoring, Visualization, Analytics, Diagnostics, Event Correlation, AI/ML/DL; (e) Data-Intensive Science and Programmable Networking; (f) Network and Communication Service Automation; and, (g) International Testbeds for Data-Intensive Science.

The Americas’ Research Platform (AmRP) Workshop will be held October 11, 1:00pm – 5:00pm. AmRP consists of North, Central and South America GRP participants and their key international partners and has its own agenda, distinct from the GRP Workshop. See AmRP website for more information.


See the eScience conference Registration site to register for the 3GRP Workshop. Note: The 3GRP registration fees include admission to the AmRP Working Group on Tuesday afternoon.
3GRP and AmRP are self-supporting, and the registration fee is $200 (early fee by September 10) and $300 (late fee after September 10). There is no 1-day pricing. Attendees and speakers are responsible for their travel, lodging and 3GRP/AmRP registration expenses, as well as the eScience conference fee if you choose to attend.


Please consider these travel information and suggestions from the eScience 2022 website:
VENUE: The 3GRP/AmRP meetings and eScience are being held at the Thomas S. Monson Center.
LODGING: eScience does not have a room block at a specific hotel, but has several hotel and Bed & Breakfast suggestions.
THINGS TO DO: For those who wish to combine conference travel with a Utah vacation, the website provides helpful travel sites.
